We had 2 Eagle Scout Scholarship entries for 2014.
Kelby F. application was submitted by Chapter Eagle Scout Chairman Joe Linville
Lucas E. application was submitted by Chapter Eagle Scout Chairman James Talbert
Both Scouts are from the Buckskin Boy Scout Council, Charleston, WV, but from different SAR chapters.
Both entries were exceptional and both boys met and went above the high standards of an Eagle Scout. The judging was very close but Kelby F. was chosen to represent the State of West Virginia in the National Contest. I would like to thank Joe & James for getting applications from their chapters. We need to get more Eagle Scouts involved in this scholarship. The scholarship has increased from $8,000.00 to $10,000.00 for first place.
